Alice Bernice Farmer Jones was born February 27, 1942, in Holly Ridge, Louisiana to the union of her parents, Clyde Jefferson Farmer Sr. and Rita Bertha Aaron Farmer, and she passed from this life January 13, 2024, at her residence. Alice was such a loving person. She grew up at Selma Baptist Church where she loved music and playing the piano. Alice was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She's accomplished so much in her life.  She could cook, paint, do crafts, sew anything she wanted, and could make cakes and flower arrangements like no other. Alice was a beautician and worked for years until she retired and became a homemaker. She canned vegetables, made jelly and continued spoiling her husband and family. Alice never complained about anything she did. She will be greatly missed. Alice was preceded in death by her parents, her siblings: Ruth Dotson and Pete Farmer; granddaughter, Ashley Cooper Knight; and five brothers-in-law: Gerald Glidewell, R.B. Jones, Richard Franklin, Henry Dotson, and James Coleman. Those left to cherish her memory are her husband of sixty-five years, Paul Neal Jones; daughter, Lisa Jones Cooper (Doug); grandchildren: Kolby Murry, McKynsli Montpelier (Caston), and Alisha Cooper; great-grandchildren: Shaun Murry, Kolton Murry, Adalinn Montpelier, Karlee Campbell, Emily Breithaupt, Landry Knight, Kaina Smith (Chaney), Kylie Smith, and Kortlyn Sloan; a great-great-grandchild, Asher Kincaid; sisters: Dot Glidewell and Margaret Coleman; and her brothers: James Farmer(Nona), and Leon Farmer (Laurie).

Pallbearers will include Brent Jones, Donald Franklin, Glen Franklin, Shane McDaniel, Dustin Farmer, Jerrylynn Glidewell, and Aaron Joy.  Honorary pallbearers are Bobby Jones, Michael Lee McDaniel, Butch Jones, Ikey Harris, Johnny Hinton, Lloyd Hennigan, Donnie Paul, and Ronald Franklin.
